A 103-year-old British great-grandmother is thought to have become the world's oldest Facebook user.

Lillian Lowe, from Tenby in Pembrokeshire, is a huge fan of the social networking site and often keeps her online friends updated about her life using her grandson's iPad.

Although there are some shocking antics on Facebook, Lillian - who took the title following the death of 104-year-old Ivy Bean in July - insists it doesn't bother her.
